When her birthday was a few weeks ago, I knew I wanted to make her an amazing, outstanding, best ever lemon dessert (her choice). Not only is she a great friend but she does not bake and thinks anyone that does is extremely awesome! So, naturally, in order for her to keep thinking I am fantastic, I have to bake her something that knocks her socks off. And this is the result, pure refreshing lemon doughnuts with a sticky lemon glaze. All in all, the absolute perfect reason to celebrate spring.
Serves: 12 (12 doughnuts)
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup milk
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
Doughnuts: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease two doughnuts pans with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar for 2-3 minutes, until fluffy. Add in the eggs, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Beat 2-3 minutes longer. Add the dry ingredients and beat until just combined. Add the milk, being careful not to overmix. Pour batter into the pans, about 1/2 full.
Bake for 8-12 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
Glaze: In a large bowl, mix powdered sugar and lemon juice until the mixture is fully combined and runny. Pour over the cooled doughnuts before serving.
Until the next time my oven is on...
